Am ong them were Private Stan Darch, who had already survived the cauldron of Dieppe; Sergeant Edward Carter-Edwards, who endured the hell of Buchenwald;RCAF Sergeant Ian MacDonald, who was on the run before being betrayed to t he Gestapo and spent six weeks in the notorious Fresnes Prison in Paris; aswell as seventeen civilian priests and brothers who were captured at sea.
